The SMPP Connector in Diafaan SMS Server supports 2-way messaging, it can handle both outgoing and incoming messages.
The issue in this topic is the routing of received SMS messages. The SMPP Connector only has an option to route all incoming messages to one specific SMPP client user. The Web Connector and the Email Connector can also handle messages as a reply to a previous message and route them back to the last user that sent an SMS to that specific phone number, but that is not an option in the SMPP Connector.
There is a way to route messages to a specific user of the SMPP Connector using the HTTP callback functionality in Diafaan SMS Server. But that requires a custom PHP or ASP.NET script, it is not a built-in function in Diafaan SMS Server.
hello there, i have a doubt. I read that diafaan dont support 2way in smpp conectors.
But in front of the web site i read: "Diafaan SMS Server is designed for professional users, companies that are looking for an easy way to integrate two-way SMS messaging into their IT system.".
This two-way is for mail and http callback only right??
We have not added this feature to Diafaan SMS Server yet. At the moment the only way to send a received message to a specific SMPP user is to use an HTTP callback script.
With this new version the 2-way communication still isn't a feature, correct?
I also need it please.
This requires the same amount of work as the solution in the previous post. We do not have concrete plans to implement this functionality at the moment but if we get enough requests from customers with a valid license that is still in the free support and upgrade period we will probably add it to one of the future versions of Diafaan SMS Server.
I understand and see your point. And I do know that implementing it isn't a trivial or quick development.
In the case of these iQsim SMPP servers, they already have this functionality. They actually send all the replies with the same MessageId as the original message and the DLR back to Diafaan, so it is just a matter of routing.
Can it be implemented easily in this case?
It is possible to add functionality to the SMPP Connector to route received messages back to the user that last sent a message to that phone number. This is not a 100% reliable solution because multiple users might send messages to the same destination and it is then unclear which user should receive the reply message.
We already use this reply logic in the Email Connector and the HTTP Connector. It is not (yet) added to the SMPP Connector and at the moment we do not have concrete plans to add it to Diafaan SMS Server in the near future.
The iQsim system is definitely sending the SMS replies to the correct SMPP bind, with information on the MessageId.
I've tested with several SMS and concurrent binds with an SMPP client (SMSC .NET client) and the DLRs and replies are always sent to the correct SMPP client.
However, when you look at the Diafaan logs, you can't correctly see the inbound messages coming from the SMPP gateway.
So it is a matter of Diafaan handling correctly the messages that come fromthe SMPP gateway. If you do it, you'll have 2-way SMS, as long as the gateway supports it.
What do you think? Can it be done?
The receipts have a message ID that matches the original message, but the received messages do not have a message ID that can be linked to a previous message.
You can link the received message to a previously sent message using the sender number but that is never entirely reliable in a multi-user setup and Diafaan SMS Server does not have an option for this in the SMPP Connector.
The HTTP callback functionality in Diafaan SMS Server makes it possible to set the user name for an incoming message with an external PHP or ASP.NET script. So it is possible to create this functionality, but is requires some custom scripting and it will not always work as expected.
Assuming the message coming from the SMPP gateway is in the Receive Log and has the same routing characteristics as the DLR: MessageId and MessageFrom. Can't it be routed back upstream to the correct Connector and UserId?
I made some tests and collected the SMPP gateway and SMPP connector logs:

Isn't there enough information to send the incoming SMS to the correct route upstream?
Diafaan SMS Server does not have built-in functionality to forward the received SMS messages to different users of the SMPP Connector. Due to the way that SMS works it is not possible to know that a message is a reply to a previous message and to which user it should be sent.
I have a system (SMPP gateway) that can handle 2-way communication, and a customer (SMPP connector) that wants to do it.
Can Diafaan handle it?
2-way would be: we send an SMS and the recipient replies with another SMS, which is correctly sent to the originator of the message.
How does it work?
